Taliban Gunman Shoots 14-Year-Old Girl Who Campaigned for Peace
Hmmm. If this girl had been shot by an Israeli soldier, there would be international riots right now. But since she was shot by a Muslim, we won't hear a peep from Muslims. I'm sensing some double standards.
(AGI) Peshawar, Oct 9 - A 14 year old Pakistani girl who fought to restore peace in Swat, has been shot. Malala Yusyufzai, who also campaigned in defence of the right to education of her fellow girls, rose to world prominence in 2009 when she blogged for the BBC Urdu service about atrocities committed by the Taliban. The girl was hit by two shots, one to the forehead as she was climbing into a car to go to school. Two other girls were also injured. Malala was transferred to hospital in Peshawar where she is reported to be in a stable condition. The recipient of the Pakistani government's first National Peace Prize in December 2011, the young girl the Taliban had put her at the top of their hit list. (Source)
